Sir_shvantselot considers Gaslands
« on: August 04, 2018, 10:50:52 PM »
I have never played any 7TV games but at least at a modelling level I wondered if this is something I might try and see if anyone down the local gaming store in Borehamwood, UK would give it a go. I fished out some super old Copplestone minis I bought as a kid from Virgin Oxford Street in like 1994 and painted about four years later, and think I might put them on flat Warlord bases to make them look more normal with the 1:43 vehicles.

But the most fun would be working up these Volkswagens I picked up as Mad Max fury road type vehicles with new 7TV bits as shown below.

I am not sure what people use for that mesh effect on the windows. Is it fly guard as shown below?

Also I wonder if those machine gunner emplacement things have separate heads so I could swap in some statuesque heads for example.
Shame Ash Barker’s new rules don’t include vehicles as I just picked up his Last Days of the zombie apocalypse.

Good luck. I just bought some of the same Crooked Dice bits. Too good to ignore. And for some reason VW Campers always look good post apocalypsed.

It's not big, or clever, but let's do it anyway

I use the car repair wire mesh (available from places like Halfords)
It is easy to cut if you use a heavy pair of scissors.
I also acquire any mesh that my wive is about to throw out, e.g. anti-splatter covers for dishes,
or strainers, that are past their best.

That's interesting. Can't wait to see your Campers modified.

Well, it took some time and who knows if they’ll ever be painted but I had a fun game of Gaslands and do took these out to work up...

This was a great tip and you see I picked up some wire mesh from Halfords…

And after a few years, painted these up. Who knows, maybe I’ll get into  Zona Alpha…

I've got the same figures somewhere. Painted them about 5 years ago and never used them on the tabletop.

That is a waste because they are good, atmospheric/characterful figures. I must find them....
